The LionheART Guide to Editing Fiction UK Edition is a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to editing fiction for independent authors.
Karen Perkins has helped over a hundred books come to publication in the past year alone, and whilst there are numerous comprehensive grammar guides out there, it is not always that easy to pick out the elements that are most useful to us as authors of fiction.
There are two options for getting the editing of your novel right: hiring an editor or doing it yourself. This guide is for authors who want to be intimately involved (and in control) of every aspect of their book. I wanted to compile a tool which is simple, easy to use and full of tips to help you decipher the punctuation and grammatical rules and apply them to your own work – without drowning you in information – whilst paying attention to current trends in the publishing industry. The areas I have highlighted are the ones I come across most often when editing and I also detail the method I use when editing and polishing a manuscript for publication.
